Step 5. Specify Data Encryption Settings
The Settings step of the wizard is available if for an S3 repository you chose to create a new folder or use an existing folder with enabled encryption.
If you chose to create a new folder for an S3 repository, you can enable encryption for backup files that you plan to store in this S3 repository. Veeam Backup for AWS encrypts backup files in S3 repositories the same way as Veeam Backup & Replication encrypts backup files in backup repositories. For more information, see the Encryption Standards section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
To enable encryption for an S3 repository:
- Select the Enable encryption check box.
- Specify a password that you want to use for encryption and a hint for the specified password.
If you chose to use an existing folder with encryption enabled at the S3 repository level, you must provide a password to let Veeam Backup for AWS access this folder and add it as an S3 repository.
